the summer that changed my life

Those words are not capitalized because in reality my life has not changed but my perspective has. I know I know that sounds so deep and thought provoking but it's not. I've realized three things this summer that more often than not are true. 

1. Opinions are important but it's usually best to keep them to ourselves. Especially while on Facebook. When other people's opinions are the opposite of yours it often leads to ugly arguments. 

2. It's okay to care about what people think of you. Which of course sounds like a contradictory statement to the one above but it's true. Having pride in yourself is awesome but if we take it too far we become vain and vapid. Trying to please the world instead of ourselves. So it's a very fine line. 

3. "As you get older things will seem more lame than before. Nothing will change but you, I promise."

Thanks for being patient.
